Denver local Drew Dober will fight on the UFC Denver card against the streaking Mike Davis. The pair of exciting lightweights are set to fight on July 13, 2024 at the Ball Arena.

News of the pairing was first reported by The Denver Post’s Kyle Newman on Tuesday.

Drew Dober (27-13) will be looking to get back on the right track after dropping a unanimous decision to Renato Moicano in his last fight, back in February. After a successful 2022, that featured three finishes and two performance bonuses, Dober, who fights out of Denver, has gone 1-2 in his last three fights. Dober’s last win came in October of 2023, when he TKO’d Ricky Glenn in the first round.

Mike Davis (11-2) will be entering enemy territory riding a four-fight winning streak. ‘Beast Boy’ is 4-1 with the UFC, with his only loss coming in his promotional debut, when he was submitted by a very respectable Gilbert Burns in 2019. Since then, Davis has scored four wins and two finishes against the likes of Thomas Gifford, Mason Jones, Viacheslav Borshchev and Natan Levy.

UFC Denver now has 10 fights announced including the women’s flyweight main event, Rose Namajunas vs. Maycee Barber. Here is what the lineup looks like so far:

  • Rose Namajunas vs. Maycee Barber
  • Luana Santos vs. Mariya Agapova
